Aliens

http://www.judicialwatch.org/blog/2012/12/court-illegal-aliens-dont-have-2nd-amendment-rights/

An illegal alien had two guns in his possession when he was arrested.  He argued that he had a constitutional right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution.  The court threw out his argument and he was convicted.  I think the courts were correct.

In my opinion the Constitution applies to citizens of the United States.  The rights enumerated there are for citizens of our nation.  Just because someone happens to be in the United States does not mean that they are entitled to the rights enjoyed by our citizens.  Illegal aliens should not have the right to keep and bear arms.  They don't have the right to vote, which is also a basic and God given right, but one reserved for the citizens of each nation.  Citizens of other nations should have basic human rights, the same minimums enjoyed by everyone by virtue of being human.

Illegal aliens should not have any of the rights in the Constitution.  They should not be permitted to remain here, after capture they should have a brief hearing to insure they are not legally here and then they should be deported.  They should not have a right to remain silent nor a right to counsel.  Being an American citizen has benefits, they should not apply to non-citizens; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
